Afterimage No. 2 - 1970 / Avant-Garde Film
Three strongly contrasting works from some of the major ‘New American Cinema’ filmmakers who made such an impact on the Afterimage editors. Brakhage’s sombre, highly edited film poem is notable for its use of found footage. In the deliriously camp Hedy, underground superstar Mario Montez (as Hedy Lamarr), Ron Tavel’s acid script and Warhol’s wandering camera vie for our attention. Finally, the fierce and ‘structural’ T.O.U.C.H.I.N.G by Sharits.
